Yang Kai’s fist had clearly struck the void, but Shi Zheng could feel that all of his strength in the Small Universe burst!
He actually had the means to directly attack his small universe.
This time, Shi Zheng was completely shocked.
It wasn’t that the various Cave Heaven Paradise didn’t have such methods. To Open Heaven Stage cultivator, the Small Universe in their body was their foundation and everything. Any turbulence caused by the Small Universe was enough to affect the Open Heaven Stage cultivator’s combat strength.
As a result, after countless years of inheritance, many outstanding ancestors had forged ahead and comprehended many Divine Abilities and Secret Arts that could affect the Small Universe.
Each of them was a secret of their respective families.
However, no matter which family’s Divine Abilities or Secret Arts they belonged to, they were all traceable and could be guarded against.
When he was fighting with Yang Kai just now, he had also used this kind of Secret Technique, but it was completely useless. Yang Kai’s Small Universe had refined the Universe Four Pillars, making it perfect, flawless, and extremely stable, making him the greatest nemesis of these Secret Techniques.
On the other hand, Yang Kai’s attack showed no signs at all. Even if Shi Zheng wanted to defend himself, he didn’t know how to.
Only now did he realize that he was the bull that had been beaten!
In front of him, Yang Kai sneered, “Why do you think I’ve been fighting with you for so long? You’ve been tricked, idiot!”
The Secret Technique of Beating Ox was indeed powerful, and it was also strange and difficult to defend against. However, this Secret Technique had a flaw, which was that it required a long period of preparation, depending on the strength of the opponent.
Yang Kai had to follow the fluctuations of the other party’s World Force in order to successfully execute the Secret Technique Beating Ox.
Back in Shattered Heaven, Blood Crow Divine Monarch had suffered a great loss because of the Secret Technique, but now, Shi Zheng was nothing more than a follow up. This Secret Technique was a strange technique that used the weak to defeat the strong and the strong to defeat the strong.
Shi Zheng spat out a mouthful of blood as his aura rapidly weakened.
Being struck by Yang Kai's Secret Technique caused his small universe to tremble violently, and the World Strength disruption was only secondary. If it was just this kind of injury, Shi Zheng wouldn’t have been in such a miserable state. After all, he was a Seventh Order with an extraordinary foundation, so ordinary injuries weren’t even worth mentioningSmall Unvierse's shaking could also be quickly suppressed.
Most importantly, he was currently activating his Divine Ability Manifestation, so he couldn’t afford to slack off.
At this critical juncture, Yang Kai threw a punch.
When the giant sword behind him shattered, Shi Zheng immediately suffered a powerful backlash.
In such a situation, it was equivalent to Yang Kai cutting himself in half. It was already a blessing that he didn’t die on the spot.
Yang Kai’s eyes lit up when he saw this, “Elder Shi’s cultivation is indeed extraordinary. When he gets angry, he even beats himself up. Admirable, admirable!”
Shi Zheng grit his teeth as blood dripped from the corner of his mouth. The grief and indignation in his heart couldn’t be any greater.
A powerful and chaotic energy fluctuation came from far away, causing Yang Kai and Shi Zheng to turn their heads at the same time, only to see a large number of streaks of light rushing towards them from the Star Boundary.
Seeing this, Yang Kai smiled and turned to Shi Zheng, “Elder Shi, I’m afraid you won’t be able to escape this calamity.”
Right now, Shi Zheng’s aura was extremely weak and it was obvious he had suffered heavy injuries. Yang Kai was even confident he could take him down on his own, let alone so many High Rank Open Heaven.
Shi Zheng could be said to be at his wit’s end.
He took a deep breath and looked at Yang Kai with a complicated expression, his anger suddenly dissipating as he became calm.
Yang Kai frowned, suddenly feeling that something was wrong, but he couldn’t explain why.
In the void, Shi Zheng sat cross-legged, quietly staring into Yang Kai’s eyes. Suddenly, his eyes turned pitch-black, and not only that, but a thick black mist began to emerge from his body.
Yang Kai was vigilant. This aura… seemed familiar.
He suddenly thought back to the gift Shi Zheng had given him. Wasn’t this the aura of the thing that had escaped from the wooden box?
What is this? Yang Kai frowned.
“Ink… Will Last Forever!” Shi Zheng said lightly, but as soon as his words fell, his entire body was enveloped by the rolling black mist and he instantly disappeared.
In the distance, the many High Rank masters who had rushed over from the Star Boundary first showed looks of suspicion, but soon after, they seemed to remember something and their expressions changed drastically.
Yu Changdao and Yin-Yang Heaven’s foreign envoy, Yu Xiangdie, sent an urgent message, “Yang Kai, quickly dodge!”
It was too late. When Shi Zheng, who was wrapped in the black mist, suddenly exploded, a large amount of black liquid that looked like ink that had been dropped into clear water quickly enveloped the surrounding space. The surrounding area was pitch black, and Yang Kai, who was standing not far away, was also wrapped in it.
Dozens of High Rank masters, including Yu Changdao and Yu Xiangdie, stood in place, each of them staring at the black figure with a look of dread.
However, now was not the time to worry. The many High Rank masters did not communicate, but as if they had a tacit understanding, they all spread out and surrounded the black fog in the distance. Immediately after, they used their Divine Abilities and Secret Arts to seal the world.
The combined might of several dozen High Rank masters was extremely powerful, and in less than a dozen breaths, the huge void where the black mist is located had transformed into a giant cage.
After doing this, everyone let out a sigh of relief.
Looking up, Yang Kai was nowhere to be seen.
After a long silence, Yu Changdao said, “I saw Sect Master Yang transform into a Big Dragon just now. With the power of the Big Dragon, it shouldn’t be difficult to resist that evil thing.”
Yu Xiangdie said, “I hope so.”
The power of the Big Dragon could indeed resist the corrosion of this evil entity, and it could even be said that the power of all Holy Spirits had a natural advantage when facing this evil entity.
However, Yang Kai was in the heart of this evil entity, so no one could say for sure what the exact situation was. Moreover, he had yet to show himself, so no one knew what the situation was.
As they were speaking, the thick fog suddenly began to churn as Yang Kai’s massive figure rushed out.
“What the hell is that?!” Yang Kai frowned. The black mist gave him an extremely uncomfortable feeling, and it was obviously not something good.
Just now, he had also been searching for Shi Zheng in the black mist, but he hadn’t found any trace of him at all, as if Shi Zheng’s last act had been a suicide.
So decisive? Yang Kai was slightly surprised. This guy was at least a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage master. Even if he couldn’t kill him, with so many High Rank Open Heaven masters coming to support him, if he couldn’t escape, he wouldn’t have died on the spot.
However, Shi Zheng had done so.
Speaking of which, Shi Zheng’s actions today had puzzled him, especially the last words he had spoken.
Turning his head, Yang Kai saw many High Rank Open Heaven masters come to a stop in the distance and looked over in surprise. Yang Kai’s figure flickered as he approached.
He didn’t understand what had happened today, but perhaps these High Rank Open Heaven knew something.
However, as soon as he made his move, everyone on the other side acted as if they were facing a great enemy, all of them activating their World Force to defend themselves.
One of them shouted, “Stop right there! If you take another step forward, we’ll kill you without mercy!”
Locked by dozens of High Rank Open Heaven auras, even Yang Kai, who had transformed into a Big Dragon, felt a great pressure. His massive body suddenly froze in place as he stared in the direction of everyone and asked, “What’s going on?”
For a moment, Yang Kai almost suspected they were in cahoots with Shi Zheng.
However, after taking a closer look, it didn’t seem to be the case. They were just being wary of him.
‘Aren’t you here to save me?’ Yang Kai was speechless. It was only now that he realized that the space he was in had been sealed by a powerful force.
Everyone looked at each other and communicated with their Divine Senses, obviously discussing something, but after a long time, there was no result.
Yang Kai lost his patience and glared at them, “What is the meaning of this!”
Yu Xiangdie comforted him, “Yang Kai, calm down, we’re not targeting you, it’s just that today’s matter is a bit complicated. Before we figure out whether you’re safe or not, don’t act rashly, lest you cause a misunderstanding.”
She is Yin-Yang Heaven’s foreign envoy, and Yang Kai also has the identity of Yin-Yang Heaven’s son-in-law, so when she spoke, Yang Kai could only listen.
Frowning slightly, he said, “Shi Zheng seems to be dead, I’m safe now.”
Yu Xiangdie shook her head, “Whether it’s safe or not can’t be seen from the surface. Let me ask you, how are you feeling right now?”
Yang Kai shook his body and said, “It hurts a little.”
After fighting with Shi Zheng, his entire body was covered in wounds and he was in great pain, desperately needing to find a place to heal.
Yu Xiangdie didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, “I’m not asking you this, I’m asking you… is there anything wrong with your Small Universe?”
Yang Kai decisively replied, “Nothing!”
What a joke, his Small Universe has the World Spring suppressing him, so how could Shi Zheng not be able to shake him?
Yu Xiangdie frowned slightly. Although Yang Kai said so, she didn’t dare completely believe him. In these 3000 Worlds, most people and even the disciples of the Cave Heaven Paradise didn’t know about these things, but how could they, as Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage masters, not know?
If something had really happened to Yang Kai, it was impossible to tell from his appearance, otherwise they wouldn’t have been deceived by Shi Zheng for so many years.
Yu Changdao said, “Sect Master, I’m afraid you’ve seen many of Shi Zheng’s abnormalities before he died. The Black Ink Smoke he released before he died is extremely corrosive. If an ordinary Open Heaven Stage's Small Universe were to be corroded by the Black Ink Smoke, he would become an existence similar to Shi Zheng. On the surface, he would appear normal, but in reality, his temperament has changed greatly. Sect Master, we are unable to determine whether or not you have been corroded by the Black Ink Smoke.”
Only now did Yang Kai understand why they were so wary of him, so he asked in surprise, “That Black Ink Smoke is so amazing?”
Speaking of which, when he was in the black ink smoke just now, he had indeed felt the black mist trying to erode his Small Universe. However, under the suppression of the World Spring, The Small Universe is perfectly round and flawless, so the black ink smoke was unable to erode him unless Yang Kai accept it himself.
Thinking about it this way, the thing sealed inside the wooden box also wanted to invade his Small Universe, but it was suppressed by the World Spring in his Small Universe, so it was unable to invade his body.
“If that’s the case, there’s no need to worry, I haven’t been corroded by the Black Ink Smoke.”
Everyone just stared at him quietly.
